HP LoadRunner Version 12.02 Tutorials

LoadRunner Tutorial 1 - Introduction to LoadRunner: This video introduces HP LoadRunner and the loadrunner performance testing process. It also explains how to download and install LoadRunner.

LoadRunner Tutorial 2 - Business Process and Sample Web Application: First, we gather the requirements. This includes identification of the business processes to be tested. In this video, we understand what a business process is and see a sample business process. Then execute that business process in the sample web application provided with LoadRunner. This application is the HP Web Tours application. In performance testing, when we run the business process, we should choose the most common or at least realistic test data. Our requirement gathering should include finding this test data.

LoadRunner Tutorial 3 - Virtual User Generator VuGen Vuser (automated performance testing) script: In this video, I have explained how to create the automated performance testing script in LoadRunner Virtual User Generator (VuGen). In VuGen, we can create a single protocol script and record the business process. We can edit the generated Vuser script to enhance it. VuGen user interface has several useful features like Solution Explorer, Step Navigator, Editor, Output pane, Errors pane, Bookmarks pane and Thumbnail Explorer.

Software Testing

Software testing is an analysis that gives us data to estimate the quality of a system. Testing a system lets us know if the system meets each of its specified requirements or not. It gives us data about the working features of the system. It also provides data about the other relevant system properties like performance, security and usability. Testing provides this data when the system is actually used, not just viewed. This why testing is so important. Especially software testing to estimate software quality. In order to learn more about quality, read my article, What is quality. View my video, Software Testing Introduction to understand what is testing and why is testing needed. Or read on
